NEWARK, N.J. — A New Jersey man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, the fifth such arrest of a tri-state area resident this month, the FBI said Monday.

Alaa Saadeh, 23, of West New York, N.J., was taken into custody Monday morning at his home, the FBI said.

In addition to accusations he conspired with other men in New Jersey and New York to provide services and personnel to the Islamic State terror group, Saadeh is suspected of trying to persuade a witness to lie to the FBI, the agency said.

The 23-year-old appeared before a judge Monday afternoon.

Manny Gomez, a former FBI agent and founder of MG Security Services says that Monday’s arrest should be embraced with mixed feelings, “The authorities are doing an amazing job at identifying, investigating and ultimately arresting these people and stopping these attacks.”

That is the good news.

As for the bad?

“The bad news is that statistically speaking, ISIS is recruiting more and more young people on a daily basis and the authorities are being challenged more and more everyday to keep up with these potential attacks,” says Gomez.

The FBI said Saadeh’s brother left the U.S. in May allegedly to join the terror group, which uses beheadings and mass killings — often captured on camera then published online — to impose its violent agenda.

Saadeh along with another man and Samuel Rahamin Topaz, 21, of Fort Lee, allegedly traveled with him and promised to meet overseas again in a few weeks. Soon after, Saadeh’s brother, whom the FBI did not identify, was arrested in Jordan on suspicion of supporting ISIS, federal officials said.

But Saadeh, Topaz and a third man continued to discuss their suspected terror goals. That is, until May 21 when he and Topaz allegedly talked about the need to “lay low,” apparently suspicious that someone may have “snitched” on their plans and that the feds were listening, the FBI said.

Saadeh allegedly revealed to an informant that he supported ISIS and their brutal slayings, the FBI said. He then allegedly told someone in New Jersey to “play dumb” and be “honest up to a point” but be sure not to tell the FBI anything about his suspected terror aspirations.

PIX 11 spoke with U.S. Representative Yvette Clarke, a former Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security at her Brooklyn office. Rep. Clarke says it translates to, “Well it just says to me that we’ve got a lot more work to do in terms of finding those potential lone operators.”

Rep. Clarke also added that equally as disturbing is the fact that a number of the men arrested are relatively young, “It speaks to some sort of disillusionment among some young people, particularly those who would be more vulnerable to those trying to find acceptance and unfortunately that acceptance is through theses dramatic terrorist plots.”

As for the fact that this is the fifth arrest in the tri-State area in recent weeks, Gomez says the rash is concerning, “Five in a short amount of time in the same area is a new thing and it makes one wonder how many more are out there in the country that we don’t have eyes and ears on that can potentially blow up, literally at any given time.”

Each count in the complaint against Saadeh carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.


Another news source writes:

Saadeh could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted.

According to the federal complaint, Saadeh believed one of the others snitched on him when he learned his brother was arrested overseas. Saadeh allegedly said he would “kill someone” and told a witness to “play dumb” after he learned the FBI was on to him.

Kerry sends US diplomat to British school overtaken by hardline Muslims

brancoThe State Dept’s entire agenda is Islam. So it makes sense they send a Muslim to a UK school overtaken by hardline Sunni Muslims. via Trojan Horse school in visit by top US diplomat to improve Muslim relations – Birmingham Mail. h/t Islamist Watch

The man tasked with boosting America’s relationship with Muslim communities across the globe has paid a visit to a Birmingham school at the centre of the Trojan Horse scandal.

Shaarik Zafar, US Secretary of State John Kerry’s special representative to Muslim Communities, met with pupils and staff at Park View – one of the five schools plunged in special measures by education watchdog Ofsted in April last year.

zafar

Do they look British?

Back in 2009 we posted on Shaarik Zafar when he was “shaping” policy at DHS.

Park View is battling back after the allegations of a plot by hardline Muslims to take over governing bodies, and is set to change its name to Rockwood Academy in September.

He also joined in a debate with pupils about the role young Muslims can play in British society and the challenges that they face.

One pupil, who did not wish to be named, said: “Some people judge us because of our headscarves but in our eyes we’re British.

Do they look British? The media only refers to them as Asian.

Mr Zafar said he was “thrilled” to meet the pupils at the predominantly Muslim school.

“Muslims are a part of Britain – this is a very British school and I’m honoured to be here,” he added. “Dialogue between communities of all faith is essential – the more we break down barriers and stereotypes the better.

So which is it? A predominantly Muslim school or a very British school?

“Park View is a unique place and the children here have a terrific opportunity to get a first class education, and I look forward to hearing more about the work that this school is doing in the future”.

Adrian Packer, executive headteacher at the school, added: “We are working hard to forge new relationships with other communities.

If it’s a very British school, then why do they need to work hard to forge new relationships with other communities?

“Playing our small part in developing the special relationship between the UK and the US is an exciting prospect for our students.

“Mr Zafar has committed to fostering more links between Park View and other similar schools, businesses and community groups in the US.


Partnering with corrupt, jihad-preaching schools like this one is the last thing American kids need to be involved with. Even Muslim parents say the school was taken over by Islamic radicals and was brainwashing children. So the taxpayer-funded State Dept. sends a Muslim rep to this school? Where school books promote stoning; 6-year-olds taught Western women are ‘white prostitutes’.

In a previous post on the it was revealed that:

…there was a “sustained and coordinated agenda to impose upon children in a number of Birmingham schools the segregationist attitudes and practices of a hardline and politicised strain of Sunni Islam“.

The draft, marked as sensitive, added that: “Left unchecked, it would confine schoolchildren within an intolerant, inward-looking monoculture that would severely inhibit their participation in the life of modern Britain”.

Fire them all.

A few weeks ago, “Mooch” Obama went to a Muslim girls school in one of the U.K.’s notorious Muslim enclaves.

Comcast pimps “It’s Ramadan” commercials in U.S. as Muslims go on worldwide Ramadan killing spree

“The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers.”

its-ramadan

In many other zip codes around the world, Muslims are killing as many as possible during Ramadan. via Dearborn company’s Ramadan commercial casts new light on Muslims – News – Press and Guide.

It isn’t every day that you see positive images of Muslims on television. But this Ramadan, a new commercial is changing that.

The Ramadan commercial aims to show the real image of everyday American Muslims and a glimpse into their lives during Ramadan. Dearborn company Piximotion created the first-of-its-kind commercial with Comcast.

“A part of the message is to show that Islam is very diverse,” said Wissam Bazzi, of Dearborn Heights and founder of Piximotion. “Islam in the mainstream media is not the only perspective.”

The 30-second clip features Muslims of various backgrounds, including scenes of families gathering for iftar, the time to break fast. The commercial highlights thankfulness, discipline and family as some of the key components of what makes Ramadan a special time for Muslims.

The commercial, which can be viewed at http://www.itsramadan.org, ends with the message: “It’s Ramadan. A month of human values. From your Muslim friends and neighbors, happy Ramadan.”

Bazzi said the project shows the humanity of Muslims, and Ramadan is a great time to do that.

The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers. More than $5,000 in funds for the commercial were raised through crowdfunding site LaunchGood and about $25,000 were raised altogether. Bazzi said the interest was so great that people even stopped into his office to support the project.

“It’s a beautiful effort of our whole community coming together. The unification of so many different individuals,” Bazzi said.

Supporters will be glad to hear that the project doesn’t end when Ramadan does. Bazzi said they are planning for a bigger commercial next year.


If the start of Ramadan is any indication, humanity is non-existent among followers of Islam. But hey, “It’s Ramadan!”

Create your own “It’s Ramadan” video and we’ll post it!

UK: Fury over plans to turn Manchester hospital chapel into Muslim prayer room

Get this…

“There are already two Muslim prayer rooms in the hospital…”

via Fury over plans to turn Christian chapel into Muslim prayer room | UK | News | Daily Express. h/t TROP

The proposal by bosses at North Manchester General Hospital has caused a furious reaction.

Father Ged Murphy, of St Patrick’s and St Malachy’s parish in Collyhurst, started the petition and it had 1,000 signatures within 26 hours.

His action was prompted by a letter issued to parishes by the Catholic chaplaincy team at the hospital.

The letter from Rev Ray Matus warned: “We write to inform you of a proposal by the Spiritual Care Chaplaincy Team at North Manchester General Hospital to close the Roman Catholic Chapel of St Raphael in order to convert it into a Muslim prayer room.

“Worship spaces are going to be provided for Muslims, Jews and Protestant Christians, and even a ‘Quiet Room’ for people of no faith at all.”Yet it is proposed that Catholics should have no space of their own.” Under the proposals Catholics would share the existing Protestant chapel.Father Murphy said: “We are not against the Muslim community having a prayer room, but don’t see the sense in taking away a chapel that is serving one community to serve another.

There are already two Muslim prayer rooms in the hospital but one, for men, does not have washing facilities.

A hospital spokesman confirmed that one proposal was to convert St Raphael’s into a Muslim prayer room.Manchester councillor Pat Karney said: “I am very disturbed to hear of these plans.”Thousands of Catholic families in north Manchester, including my own, have used this mini chapel. I will be meeting with the hospital bosses to clarify their intentions.”

NYPD finally tickets hundreds of cabbies illegally double-parked while praying in mosques

Will Sheik Deblasio void the tickets or fire the officer(s) who gave the tickets? via Hundreds of cabbies ticketed while praying in mosque | New York Post. h/t BNI

The NYPD went on a taxi ticketing blitz outside a mosque on the Upper West Side while drivers were inside reciting Ramadan prayers Friday, The Post learned.

At least one officer handed out nearly 100 tickets on the streets surrounding the Islamic Cultural Center on Riverside Drive near West 72nd Street, said cabby ­Mohammad Zaman.

“This is a special prayer time, a time for religion. We double-park here every Friday and they [allow it], but today they gave us all tickets, almost 100 cabs,” he said.

Zaman, who has been attending services at the mosque for nine years, was slapped with a dreaded orange envelope that held a $115 greeting for double parking.

“This has never happened ­before,” he said.

“I can’t help but to think they are being prejudiced. They don’t understand. We have to be here.”

His ticket incorrectly listed the violation date as Saturday, June 27, he said. The wrong date on the ticket could get him off the hook.

Ramadan this year is observed from June 17 through July 17.

A volunteer at the mosque said cops used to cut cabbies a break.

But this year, “maybe three or four times [this month] I’ve seen them go down the line giving tickets to cabs, and [they’re] getting strict again,” the volunteer said.

An NYPD spokesman said that while individual precincts may make accommodations in extenuating circumstances, such as the Ramadan observation, double parking is never authorized, citing, for example, the need for emergency vehicles to navigate the roads.

A source at the 20th Precinct, which covers the mosque, said he wasn’t aware of an organized ticket blitz.

He added that cops at the precinct have a good relationship with the mosque.

“It is mandatory in our religion to come to the mosque every Friday. It’s our duty. Other places they are OK with double parking — people do it everywhere here — but now they won’t let us? Most of us only come for one hour,” said cabby Mohammad Choudhury.

Driver MD Shomuz, who has been going to the mosque for six years, said, “No one has been given tickets before, but today ­everyone got one.”

“It’s frustrating, but what can I do?” he said.

On 06/25/15 I attempted to get an Edible image cake printed with the confederate flag image on it at Walmart. It was denied. The next day I had them do the same for the ISIS battle flag image I brought to them. They cheerfully did it. and sold me my ISIS cake. WTF Walmart! ISIS is beheading Christians, selling little girls into slavery, and is currently a terrorist org at war with the United States……..but you can’t buy the General Lee toy car at Wallmart? It’s a damn shame.

 

Obama to host Nigeria’s sharia-committed president as 9 sentenced to death for blaspheming Mohammed

via Obama to host Nigeria’s Buhari on July 20: White House – Yahoo News.

(AFP) – US President Barack Obama will welcome his Nigerian counterpart to Washington next month, the White House announced Thursday, a symbolic show of solidarity after the country’s first ever democratic transition.

“President Obama will host Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House,” on July 20, the White House said.

The visit will mark “our support for the Nigerian people following their historic democratic elections and peaceful transfer of power,” a statement added.

Meanwhile, Nigerian court sentences nine to death for blasphemy

Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) – Nine people have been sentenced to death in northern Nigeria after being found guilty of blasphemy, a court clerk and the head of the religious police told AFP on Friday.

The Upper Sharia Court in the city of Kano handed down death sentences to a Sufi Muslim cleric and eight of his followers for remarks they made about the Prophet Mohammed last month.

The comments, made during a religious ceremony, sparked anger and violence in the city.

Court clerk Alhaji Nasuru said the nine, including one woman, were “sentenced to death in accordance with sections 110 and 302 of the Sharia penal code.”

The head of the Kano state Sharia (Islamic law) police, known locally as the Hisbah, welcomed the verdicts.

“We are happy the Sharia court handed the death sentences to the nine people who made the blasphemous statements against the Holy Prophet,” said Aminu Daurawa.

The trial was held in secret to avoid violence, after crowds set fire to a section of the Sharia court on the defendants’ first appearance on May 22.

The judgment still has to be approved by Kano governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, added Daurawa, who warned the sentence should remind Muslims that blasphemy attracts the ultimate penalty.

He also said the risk of violence was high if the nine were released.

“The concern is mobs would take extrajudicial action if these convicts are for whatever reason released because they would certainly kill them when they see them on the streets,” he said.

There was no immediate word on whether the nine would appeal.

Sharia courts in northern Nigeria have handed down death sentences for adultery, murder and homosexuality since they were set up in the early 2000s. But to date, no executions have been carried out.

Twelve states in the mainly Muslim north have the courts, which run parallel to state and federal justice system.


Obama’s boy has clearly stated his desire for sharia in Nigeria:

“I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.”
